Soda Water: from Michael Bale on 2009-08-08

Does soda water which is made from water and sodium bicarbonate affect the Hay diet?



I think it will affect the ph of my stomach which will negate the Hay diet.



Please advise.

You would have to drink large amounts of soda water to have any effect on the ph of the stomach.
The stomach produces acid in response to a protein meal, so if you are concerned don't drink soda water with a protein meal
